The social media app Instagram, owned by Meta, has recently introduced several new features that greatly benefit users, enabling them to engage in a variety of creative activities.

With the ban on TikTok, many users and creators have turned to social media apps to watch short videos, showcase their talents, and gain popularity. Here are some noteworthy features:


This feature allows users to enhance their stories by incorporating different styles, such as changing fonts and colors. Users can also choose from various video creator voices and add an avatar image to make their content more engaging.

Instagram Creator Analytics

Users can now analyze watch time, average watch time, and retention to better understand audience engagement. This feature helps creators tailor their content to keep viewers engaged for longer periods.

Video Editing Tools

Instagram now provides Undo and Redo buttons, making video editing smoother for creators. Unlike before, these features are now readily available within the app.

Video Downloads

Previously, users had to rely on third-party apps and online platforms to download videos. Now, Instagram allows users to download videos directly within the platform, streamlining the process.

Threads Feed

Users can now view posts from 'Threads' on the app. This feature displays similar content and posts from users you follow, enhancing the overall browsing experience.

Your Activity Section

A new 'Your Activity' section enables users to access a comprehensive overview of their actions, including likes, comments, tags, stickers, responses, and reviews. Users can even review recently deleted content, providing a convenient way to track and manage their activities on the app.
